What are affiliates in ConvertKit?

Affiliates in ConvertKit are individuals or businesses that promote ConvertKit's services to their audience. They do this through various marketing strategies such as content marketing, email marketing, social media marketing, and more. Affiliates earn a commission for every new customer they bring to ConvertKit through their promotional efforts.

The ConvertKit affiliate program is designed to reward those who refer new customers to their email marketing platform. Affiliates are provided with a unique referral link that they can share with their audience. When someone signs up for ConvertKit through this link, the affiliate earns a commission. This program is a way for ConvertKit to expand its customer base while also providing a revenue stream for its affiliates.

How does the affiliate program work in ConvertKit?

ConvertKit's affiliate program works by allowing users to earn a commission for every new customer they refer to the platform. When a user signs up for the affiliate program, they are provided with a unique referral link that they can share with their audience. This link tracks anyone who clicks on it and makes a purchase within a certain period of time.

When a referred customer signs up for a paid ConvertKit plan, the affiliate earns a 30% commission. This commission is recurring, meaning the affiliate will continue to earn 30% of the customer's monthly or annual subscription fee for as long as the customer remains a paying ConvertKit user. The affiliate can track their referrals, clicks, and earnings through a dashboard provided by ConvertKit.

How much can you earn from ConvertKit's affiliate program?

ConvertKit's affiliate program offers a lucrative earning opportunity. The program provides a recurring 30% commission for every referral that signs up for a paid ConvertKit plan through your unique affiliate link. This means that for as long as your referral remains a paying customer, you will continue to earn 30% of their monthly payment.

The actual amount you can earn from ConvertKit's affiliate program depends on the number of successful referrals you make and the plan your referrals subscribe to. ConvertKit's plans range from $29 per month to $79 per month for up to 3,000 subscribers. Therefore, if your referral subscribes to the $79 per month plan, you would earn approximately $23.70 per month from that single referral. The more referrals you have, and the higher the plan they subscribe to, the more you can potentially earn.
